A few years ago I spent the better part of my visit to an antique mall pouring over a 1930s photo album, full of pictures of a group of friends picnic outings, and other adventures. I still regret not buying it.
Now every time I see a scrapbook I open it up hoping to find a collection of pictures (it seems most have them taken out), and in the back of my mind hoping it will be that one collection of pictures I left behind.
So the other day when I opened this unassuming black scrapbook, I was elated to find photos of an all girls Canadian roadtrip. After the war Americans went a little roadtrip crazy, visiting national parks and such, or wherever they could drive.
Here's what the first page reads:
"TRIP TO BANFF AND LAKE LOUISE
Jean, Evie, and Cheryl Leave June 12 from Seattle for Edwall at 7:00am"
From what I can gather this was Cheryl's scrapbook (most seen in plaid shirt and jeans). There's lots of other fun pics, but these are some of my faves.
In love with Evie's outfit
And Jean's lace back pants!
I think the "What a view" is meant for the scenic photo below the text. But it's funnier for the one above it.
*correction, it was for that photo. Funny girls*
I wonder why they're wearing suits and heels in a cabin?
Also that rug looks cool.
Look at the ruffles on her housecoat!
These two below were taken the next year, possibly in Seattle, but I thought they were a
great contrast to her roadtrip look. And that purse looks interesting
